This story was so fulfilling. I'd rewatched the borgias on Showtime and I missed them when season 3 ended and there was no more. So when I came upon this story I was so glad to be back in the life of the borgias. It was an incredibly written and very entertaining. I enjoyed it immensely and I thank you for writing it. :)

So well written that it compares with all the novels about the Borgias that I have read. I read it all in a day and recommend you turn it into a novel :)

Oh dear. Sancia is bound to say something about the Giovanni's… This can't be good.

I thought Cesare didn't want to be left alone with Lucrezia? Why is he turning around and visiting her seemingly the next day? Isn't she angry with him about the fight?

Thanks for to share this lovely fic with us! I love the borgias...
By the way, being a chilean, I can help you with the spanish: When Juan says: "Cesare and Sancia de cambio sucios secretos sobre mí y me llaman tonto a mis espaldas. Sé que esto, Lucrezia, Cesare le gusta mejor me Sancia y sólo desea despertar mi desagrado.", is not a very good translation for spanish... I think it will be better: " Cesare y Sancia intercambian sucios secretos sobre mí y me llaman tonto a mis espaldas cuando yacen juntos. Lo sé bien, Lucrezia, a Cesare le gusta competir conmigo y Sancia intenta molestarme con él."
Just a little help! :-)

Wow. I loved it. I read it in one go and now I'm a bit sad that it's over. You did a brilliant job here. This story is really, really great. I love how you wrote everything and everyone. Thank you for writing this.

I can't believe that there is only one chapter left. This story is addictive and really well-written. I appreciate its accuracy and the characterization of everyone.

It seems that I have found a really well-written story. As much as I love Showtime Borgias, I hate the fact that in certain matters it was very inaccurate historically. Apparently you have studied their history thoroughly, so I will keep reading. I know that I won't be disappointed.

I love this! I cried during the last 2 chapters :( ITS SO SAD

This was an amazing story. Addictive from begining to end, and so complete. I like how it's not based on any of tv series specifically, but on actual history (for the most part). The interaction between Cesare and Lucrezia in the first half of the story was particullary good.
Great job overall.

What a great ending - I love that he will sign his letter this way ) And I love how Cesare switches between anger/frustration and reverence/adoration with Lucrezia.
| KatieR chapter 12 . 11/27/2012
Great chapter! The plot fabrication is nicely done and works perfectly into Lucrezia's tumultuous circumstances. I was OVER Alfonso and am not saddened at his death; a shame, to be sure, but he did dig his own grave.
| KatieR chapter 11 . 11/27/2012
Great chapter. I love this! Especially Lucrezia's coming-of-age and giving into her sin.
| KatieR chapter 10 . 11/26/2012
Ooooooh and the plot thickens.
| KatieR chapter 9 . 11/26/2012
I love how Lucrezia avoided him after, and is sick over him being married - poor Cesare!
